Unicef WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) is day two of our A Week of Holiday Giving To Women In Need
Christmas is all about giving. You put a lot of effort into finding that perfect present to delight your loved ones, anticipating their joy and happiness as they open them. Christmas is also the ideal opportunity to give back. You can help those less fortunate and contribute to making the world a better place this year.
It is easy to dismiss the effort, after all the world is a big place and there is so much need. Money is always a blessing, but you can also give of your time. In fact, there are some amazing opportunities to work with international organizations.
AT FORTY FIVE has put together a list of organizations with international reach. Although many are headquartered in the USA, they have branches around the world.

Safe drinking water is a necessity for life, yet worldwide, 2.2 billion people cannot access clean water, even in some developed countries. Three billion people cannot wash their hands with clean water and soap. For over 50% of the population, there is no safe sanitation, and 673 million people have no bathroom facilities.
Unicef works in over 100 countries to promote and implement safe sanitation practices to combat child disease. During COVID Unicef has mobilized even more teams to those places in the world lacking basics including refugee and transfer camps.
Unicef is celebrating over 75 years of service to the children of the world, advocating for children on a global level.
There are many fascinating positions available with Unicef ranging from supply chain analysis to HR and medical volunteers. Consider traveling around the world and contributing to those in need. Review the openings here.
